A baby cardigan in three sizes.
A cabled braid adds interest to the centre front. It closes with snaps, and pretty buttons can be sewn on top. The inner snap band is wide, so you can move the snaps a bit further when your baby grows.

This pattern comes in three sizes: S 0-3 months, M 4-7 months, and L 8-12 months. Note that wear can be extended due to the extra wide snap band. Check the measurements in the diagram.

Intermediate skills: casting on, knitting, purling, simple cabling (from chart or written instructions), increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round (for the sleeves), binding off.
Knitting two sleeves at the same time (optional).

What you’ll need
4mm (US 6) circular needle. The body can be knit with straight needles.
200 {260} 360 metres / 220 {285} 395 yards of DK yarn.
